COREPLUS STUDIO FAQS
Any, and all, of them! Our classes are suitable for people at all levels with appropriate modifications available to help you ease into the class. At CorePlus we’re a welcoming and inclusive bunch, so there’s always someone here to help. We recommend taking advantage of our Intro Offers to try out as many different classes as you can.
Arrive: 15 minutes early to register and set up (you can also save time by registering online beforehand)
Wear: Light and comfortable exercise gear. Avoid anything heavy that will weigh you down when you sweat. Leggings or shorts and a light top is perfect.
Bring: Water and a couple of towels (one to go over your mat in the room, and one for a shower afterwards). We sell bottled water, mats and towels at the studio, if you need.
All our classes are low impact and performed in a thermo-controlled studio, so there’s no need for runners in CorePlus classes.
It’s always a good idea to book in advance as our classes can fill up quickly. You can book online here to secure your spot!
Absolutely. Flexibility is not a prerequisite (but it is something you’ll benefit from the more you come along and practice). In fact, it’s a reason you should come along.
Our classes are practiced in a thermo-controlled studio space to assist with warming up the muscles, allowing for deeper and safer stretching.
The heat also elevates the heart rate, adding a cardiovascular element to your class for those seeking fitness benefits in addition to strength and flexibility.
As you sweat, your pores are opened and cleaned and your body has begun to detox. There is nothing quite like the glow you experience as a result of regular practice, as your eyes beam brighter and skin becomes clear and smooth.
The heated room really ensures you focus your mind and your breath, leading to better concentration and improved mental clarity.
We use different levels of heat for each class. You can check out detailed information on each class here.
The diverse range of CorePlus classes means that there are a multitude of positive outcomes as a result. The more classes you try, the more benefits you are likely to see. Just some of these include:
Fitness: high-intensity elements assist with weight loss and improved cardiovascular health.
Strength: from static postures to weight work, you’ll build strength and muscle tone in each CorePlus class.
Flexibility: consistent practice in the controlled environment of the heated room will enable you to reach new levels of personal flexibility
Mindfulness: by calming your mind and encouraging you to be present in the moment, CorePlus classes help reduce stress and anxiety in everyday life.
Skin: your skin will glow as the heat opens your pores and the sweat flushes away nasty toxins
By combining a range of cardio, weight work and stretching to your health and fitness program you’ll avoid plateauing. One thing we can assure you is that you’ll never get bored at CorePlus!
